Make your HR and Payroll data available dynamically in SAP Analytics Cloud

SAP® and SuccessFactors customers have many options for reporting and analytics, as detailed in my new ebook titled ‘2021 HCM and Payroll reporting options for SAP and SuccessFactors’. The biggest player in SAP Analytics is the SAP Analytics Cloud. Can you make your HR and Payroll data available dynamically in SAP Analytics Cloud?

What is SAP Analytics Cloud?

The SAP Analytics Cloud solution combines BI, augmented and predictive analytics, and planning capabilities into one cloud environment. As the analytics layer of SAP’s Business Technology Platform, it supports advanced analytics enterprise-wide.

I have written a dozen or so articles, ebooks and blogs on SAP Analytics Cloud, including the most recent ones shown below:

Connect your SAP on-premise data with SAP Analytics Cloud

If you would like to share your SAP ECC on-premise or SAP SuccessFactors hybrid data or data from your SuccessFactors Employee Central Payroll dynamically with SAP Analytics Cloud, we have a solution.

You’re probably already familiar with the SAP-certified solution, Query Manager. As the most popular reporting solution for SAP HCM and Payroll customers, Query Manager provides accurate, meaningful and real-time information from all of your SAP HCM and Payroll data whether you are on-premise in SAP ECC, in a hybrid SAP SuccessFactors environment, or with SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central Payroll. And the exciting news is that Query Manager also serves as an engine for feeding all this data – including configuration, custom tables, Time and Payroll – with any external system with OData integration. This includes SAP Data Analytics Cloud.

It’s easy to set up and use

  1. Query Manager extracts the relevant data for you (whether it be Payroll or PA, OM etc) without replicating the data, even for a sizeable volume.

  2. You can build the queries, without writing code, without staging the data, in another system.

  3. Query Manager generates a web service that exposes that data as an OData service that you can then consume via SAP Analytics Cloud.

You can also combine on-premise data with other data sources, including SuccessFactors, that come from other parts of your ecosystem.


In the sample below, you can see Query Manager Analytics Connector as the data source.

In the sample below, you can see Query Manager data exposed in SAP Analytics Cloud.


You can then expose this data as analytics in a dashboard, for use in making analytics and strategic decisions for your enterprise. In the sample below, you can see a sample published story in SAP Analytics Cloud populated with dynamic data from an SAP HCM and Payroll system.



What’s ideal is that you can easily refresh the data within SAP Analytics Cloud, on demand, to retrieve the latest available data to you (no more uploading and downloading). SAP Analytics Cloud is simply another dynamic integration available with Query Manager as detailed in the diagram below.  Others include analytics solutions like Qlik, Tableau or Microsoft PowerBI or the data warehousing solution SAP Data Warehouse Cloud.
